# ANTIDERIVATIVES

(INTEGRAL)
THE INDEFINITE INTEGRAL AND THE
BASIC INTEGRATION FORMULAS
OBJECTIVES:

## know the relationship between

differentiation and integration;

## identify and explain the different parts of the

integral operation; and

## perform basic integration by applying the

power formula and the properties of the
indefinite integrals.

## A function F is called an antiderivative (or

integral) of the function f on a given open
interval if F(x) = f(x) for every value of x in the
interval.
DEFINITION: ANTIDERIVATIVE (INTEGRAL)
For example, the function is an
antiderivative of on
interval because for each x in this
interval .

In general, once any single antiderivative is
known, the other antiderivatives can be obtained
by adding constants to the known derivative.
Thus,

Theorem If F(x) is any antiderivative of f(x) on
an open interval, then for any constant C the
function F(x)+C is also an antiderivative on that
interval. Moreover, each antiderivative of f(x) on
the interval can be expressed in the form F(x)+C
by choosing the constant C appropriately.

DEFINITION: THE INDEFINITE INTEGRAL
The process of finding antiderivatives is
called antidifferentiation or
integration. Thus, if
then integrating (or antidifferentiating) the
function f(x) produces an antiderivative of
the form F(x)+C. To emphasize this
process, we use the following integral
notation

need no proof from the fact that these
properties are also known properties of
